Say 'Ello to My Little Frieah!!!!
I felt like Tony Montana today, separating a bunch of white powder in to baggies. Now it wasn't the nose candy that Al Pacino's character was pushing. No, it was extra light dried malt extract. Fifty-five pounds of it to be exact. Muckney Brewing decided to kick it up a notch and start buying bulk. We now have enough DME for a WHILE.
We did make a bit of a dent by doing two batches of RIS. Currently named Ides of March Russian Imperial Stout, we are planning on aging this for a while, with half of it on bourbon soaked oak chips (Ides of March Russian Imperial Stout Quercus borealis). A pretty smooth brew day overall. Jon joined us for a bit and a few brews.
Good times today. Can't wait for this one to be done. It's gonna be a long haul.
